Lovely big cave and self guided so it's nice to spend as much time as you like looking. If you don't like heights you may want to consider before paying $22 to go in.

We really loved Mammoth Cave. We could do it at our own pace as they give you a headset which you can switch off and on as you walk along. We thought it was a beautiful cave and we spent quite some time there - it was certainly interesting. I would not say it is wheelchair friendly, there are many... More

Throughly enjoyed this cave! Didn't bother using the mp3 handset we were given as I was excited to experience this cave and take in it's surrounding with just my boyfriend's presence. It was a beautiful cave and probably the favourite thing I saw my entire trip down south. The bush walk was beautiful however, we seemed to miss the part... More

This was a great cave to explore at our own pace as it is a self guided tour so you are able to move through at your own pace. when you purchase your ticket you are given audio and headphones to carry as you move through different parts of the cave listening to interesting info about the formations and history...

We visited Mammoth Cave to avoid having to wait for a guided tour at near-by Lake Cave. Having a self-guiding experience worked well and we were lucky that the cave had few visitors (see other reviews regarding narrow walkway's). The commentary was interesting from a geological and historical perspective. Reasonably educational for my son. Unfortunately, there was not really too... More

Dear Hellikonian, Thanks for posting here about your experiences at Mammoth Cave, and we're glad you enjoyed your tour. We've made the layout of the stairs and boardwalks in Mammoth Cave as user-friendly as we can without impacting the delicate calcium carbonate crystal, or removing visitors too far away from the formations. We find that about 90 percent of our... More

The cave was absolutely amazing to view, it was a little on the pricey side to view at $22 per cave, and the torch we were given for the stairs was insufficient, however the audio presentation by headset so you could proceed at your own leisure as well as the clever positioning of lighting throughout the cave to view the...

Alan was our guide and he did an excellent job of keeping my 9 and 6 year old children engaged and interested for the whole time. Enjoyed the cave tour. Thanks so much.

We were underwelmed. It's a self guided tour through the cave, using a headset and music player device. Yes the cave was spectacular to see, but after a short while the shine wore off. You walk through listening to some people talking away on your headset, not as exciting as an actual guide. Then you have to turn around and... More

Dear Mike VW78, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback on your visit to Mammoth Cave. As you say, Mammoth Cave is a spectacular place but I'm sorry to hear that you found the walkways congested on this occasion. Most of the walkways are one-way only, part of a round-trip through the cave and back to... More

This is one of the most biggest caves I've visited and cave itself is very well preserved. You are given a guided audio tour with the entrance ticket and you can also choose to walk along a forest trail once you are done with the cave tour. Overall a very pleasant trip.

It was very pretty and worth seeing. I wasn't too bothered about the walk through the bush afterwards but that was optional.
